There will be two e-discussions (in both English and French) focusing on two related topics. The aim is to create momentum for conversations on key topics to be addressed at the 9th World Water Forum in March 2022, in Dakar, Senegal. You are invited to participate in the webinars and e-discussions.

E-discussions
  • E-discussion 1: 4-24 November 2021 focusing on Prioritization of Rural WASH including Sustainability and Quality of Rural WASH services.
  • E-discussion 2: 29 November to - 17 December 2021 on Resource Mobilization and Accountability for Resource use for Rural WASH.

The main purpose of e-discussion is to provide a forum for a wide range of participants for discussions on issues pertaining to the two broad topics as a direct contribution to the 9WWF discussions and outcomes. The discussions will also aim to contribute to the UN Special Rapporteur's 2022 thematic report on "the human rights to safe drinking water and sanitation of people in impoverished rural areas".

The webinars will be in both English and French, with simultaneous translation.

The e-discussion is open to anyone who registers on the E-discussion platform.
